There are tons of different topwater lures. These are our favorites.

Topwater baits can be used from sun up to sun down. As the fall season approached, it's not just early morning or late evening. We suggest you buy a couple of each topwater style and try them. I guarantee you quickly become a topwater addict.
Best Fishing Tips for Early Morning Largemouth Bass Fishing
Fish Faster When Water Temperatures are Warm
When water temperatures are warmer, bass will usually be most active in the early morning. Try fishing the shallows for some of those active bass. Cover some water with some search baits to find active bass.
Fish Slower When Water Temperatures are Cold
When water temperatures are cold, bass will usually be sluggish in the morning. Slow down and fish close to cover while you wait for water temps to warm up as the sun gets high in the sky.
Topwater Lures are Awesome From Late Spring Through Early Fall
When water temperatures are consistently above 65 degrees, you can usually experience some awesome topwater fishing during the first couple hours of the morning. Some lakes offer a better topwater bite than others, but it’s definitely a technique worth trying on your favorite body of water.
Fish Faster & Cast Your Baits Slightly Away From Cover
Bass will be more active in the a.m. as long as water temperatures are warm. You will usually find more bass farther away from cover during this time period than you will during the afternoons. Because a lot of bass are searching for a meal, you need to spread your casts out to find bass that are away from their preferred resting spot.
Best Fishing Tips for Afternoon Largemouth Bass Fishing
Slow Down & Fish Tighter to Cover
This is a no brainer. It will help you put more fish in the boat. At this time of day, you are going to be trying to get some inactive fish to bite. Leaving a bait close to their resting spot for longer will help get some of these fish to bite.
Early Spring & Late Fall – Get out and Fish
The afternoon will usually be the better time to fish during the early spring and late fall or even early winter. The warmer water temperatures during the middle of the day will help trigger some bass to feed.
If you’re on a body of water that draws current during the day, fish when the current is running. It’s like ringing a dinner bell. It could be the best time of the day to fish.
Sometimes, you just have to fish deeper. Find a drop-off near your best shallow water spots and you’ll probably find some of those bass that were in the shallows in the morning, but have disappeared.
Use Your Electronics
Using your electronics to find drop-offs and the drop-offs that actually hold fish is a great way to find bass once they go deeper.
Best Fishing Tips for Evening Largemouth Bass Fishing
Fish with Topwater Lures
While everything will typically work while fishing in the evening, this may be the best time to get a nice bass to come up and hit a topwater lure. With water temperatures above 65 degrees, try throwing your favorite topwater lure for the last 90 minutes before it gets dark.
Search Baits are King
Because bass will usually turn on and feed aggressively, you can usually fish a little faster and catch quite a few bass by throwing your favorite search bait.
Best Fishing Tips for Largemouth Bass Fishing at NightGo With a Buddy
Simple. Be safe. Go with a buddy.
Have the Proper Lights
No lights and you’re asking for trouble. You may be fine, but just wait for the tangles.
Know the Water You’re Fishing
Scout out the areas you plan on fishing at night during the day. This is one of the best tips for staying safe.
Check the Weather
You don’t want to be on the water at night if bad storms are coming in. Even if you know what you’re doing and you have all the required safety gadgets, it won’t matter if something happens and you need the help of someone else. There is a good chance that nobody will be out there to lend a hand.
Fish During the Full Moon
The full moon offers more light at night which makes fishing easier on the angler, which is great. The fishing is usually also better, so it’s a win-win.
Fish slower and you’ll catch more bass. Simple, but so true.
Fish Topwater Lures
Topwater lures are the most popular lures for catching largemouth bass at night. The best topwater lures for night fishing are crawlers. These lures crawl along the surface with a steady, wobbling action that drive bass crazy. Bass can find these lures a lot easier than other topwater lures, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a lot of success with a variety of topwater lures.
Walk-the-dog Topwater baits
Topwater lures are one of the most exciting way to catch bass. There’s just something about that big bass inhaling a topwater bait followed by some tail-walking that gets the heart beating like nothing else.
Sammy Style torpedo shaped or often called “spooks” after the eponymous Heddon Zara-Spook, topwater stick baits have a cigar shaped body that sashays back and forth in an enticing “walk-the-dog” action, in what should be a required skill for every serious basser. Topwater baits look like a dying baitfish trying frantically to escape on the surface.
How to fish: Make a long cast and start twitching your rod tip down at a regular pace, and reel on the slack pulls. You’ll have the bait sashaying back and forth in no time. Topwater stick baits are deadly when worked along rip rap, over points, and anywhere bass are known to school. Of all the topwaters, Torpedo shaped baits have by far the most pulling power, and as such are the most effective topwater over deep water and in open water.

well over 75,000 hours. Now compare that to your experience.
KNOWLEDGE: Take all the hours fishing, then add all the hours doing research. Pros spend hours and hours
studying every bit of information they can about specific lakes. They study each lure and how it reacts in

Owner and CEO of bigbassbaits.net
It’s Spring, a beautiful day on the lake; you open your Crankbait Tackle box.
The question of the day is “Which one should I throw?”
There are a few elements that make your decision easy.
First you consider water temperature and clarity. Next we need to figure out the bass depth, position and mood to assist the angler in selecting the size, sound, action, and color. It’s early April and the lakes water is warming up fast. Every thing that swims in the lake is on the bank or close by, so depth of water is easy…..Shallow! When the water temperature is above 65 degrees, the bass are aggressive, so a bait with a wide wobble and a rattle makes sense.
For the next few weeks our crankbaits should not be in water depth more than 6 ft. I prefer 4 ft. It’s pre-spawn time and a lot of dating is going on between male and female bass. April in the southeast is our rainy time, so most lakes and high and dirty. This means slow wide wobbly crankbaits in bright colors are best.
*Summertime Hottest Secrets to Catch More and Bigger Fish*
In the 4 months from June through September, the bass in your lake feed
more than the other 8 months combined. Why?
*1. **Hot weather and hot water equals raised metabolism and the fish
eat all day instead of only a few times a day.*
*2. **Bigger Baits are better. All bait fish reach their biggest size
in the summer so, MATCH THE HATCH! Bigger baits equals more bites.*
*3. **Current is everything. Lakes that have power plants or dams
generate more when it is super hot outside. (They have to power all that
air-conditioning) Schedule your fishing around when the plant/dam is
generating. It creates current and when the water is moving FISH EAT MORE
and more and more.*
*4. **Schooling Bass and Jerkbaits! When it’s hot and the bass are
schooling, try a suspending jerkbaits. They will destroy them!*
*OK, It’s hot but now you have no excuse not to go fishing.*
GO GET 'EM!
*Use our secrets and you will look forward to the Good Ole Summer Time!*
*Go get ‘em!*
The pros at bigbassbaits.net have it figured out. When it is time to dig out all your cold weather fishing coats and gloves, there is one more thing you need to remember…. Suspending Jerkbaits!
There is one thing that will turn a cold, nasty winder day on the lake into a hot time. Suspending Jerkbaits are the key. Bigbassbaits.net, one of the leaders in creating and custom hand-painting fishing lures, specializes in developing color patterns that motivate dormant cold water bass into attack mode.
Did you ever notice when you are fishing in cold weather and cold water, the fish you catch all look they went through 100 car washes. The bass have very little color, pale white on white. Not only does the bass look like they need a sunlamp, the baitfish do, too! Now if all the baitfish are without color, why would a Big Old Bass attack something that has the brilliant colors of the Christmas season? MATCH THE HATCH takes on a brand new meaning in cold water. Before you make your first cast, check the water temperature and tie on the color jerkbait that works best in that temperature.
Next is the Water Color, another piece of the puzzle in selecting the right jerkbaits. Why?
Trash Dirty Water – all the junk in the water actually holds the sunlight creating warmer water. Sometimes 2 degrees warmer water is the secret to filling your live well. Adjust your color and retrieval speed.
The opposite, Deep Clean Water holds the coldest water in the lake. It is best to use clear transparent baits with a slow retrieve.

The new Star Wars Movie
Fall Fishing patterns guaranteed to catch more and bigger bass.
The Fishing Pro Staff at bigbassbaits.net have developed a couple of tricks that will turn your fall fishing into fun fishing. When the air and water temperature begin dropping below 50 degrees, in most lakes across the country, largemouth bass fishing can be very hard to figure out and catch.
Nobody knows everything about catching Mr. Bigmouth Bass (except maybe K.V.D) but it can be as basic as knowing what to do and when.
Bigbassbaits.net Trick #1: Shallow bass tactics
As we discussed in last month’s article, bass fishing in the fall on all lakes is Shad orientated. It’s called chasing the food chain. The most important tool in finding and catching fall bass is knowing how to find the lake’s food chain. When the lakes are cooling down, it is time to stop fishing far off shore and start fishing close to shore. Remember when the food chain is shallow the bass are shallow.
How Shallow? Well, many years , while I was fishing a BASS tournament I heard a story that helped me understand how shallow is shallow!
A veteran Pro-fisherman drew a co-angler partner and immediately thought this guy was nuts, crazy, etc. The co-angler wanted to fish in a creek that was so shallow there were cows walking in it. The Pro said “There can’t be any fish here” and his partner just laughed and taught that pro a lesson I will never forget. That shallow section of the creek was loaded with giant largemouth bass! Most important, it was loaded with the lake’s food chain – big shad and baitfish which those big bass followed all the way back to the cow’s feet. Needless to say, both fishermen ended up cashing big checks after winning the tournament.
That story changed the way I fish in the fall. FOREVER!
Don’t get discouraged if it doesn’t work in all areas of your lake. Eventually you will learn to pattern the food chain transition. Once you do, it’s time to discuss what to fish with. These are the fishing lures we have had the most success with over the past 15 years. The key is Match the Hatch. If there is threadfin shad, throw baits that look like that type of shad.
Try and fish as fast as you can, covering lots of water. Once you find them, then pattern them. Example: You fished the shallow part of 4 creeks and only 1 had Shad and Bass. Why? It was the only creek that faced North and had wind blowing in. Now, go to every northern facing creek pocket with wind blowing in and you will discover 90% of the time they have Shad & Bass! WOW, now the fishing gets fun!
Bigbassbaits.net Trick#2: Lake turnover and jig fishing
The truth about cold water turnover. Have you ever gone fishing and just about every creek that you go into, there are bubbles coming up from the bottom and the top of the water has a brown film and stinks? Get out of there as soon as possible.
It means the lake has turned over. What is turnover? By definition, it is when the lower layer of water mixes with the upper layer in a short time span. We at bigbassbaits.net believe in most cases, turnover only lasts a few days, but if it’s the day you go fishing……how do you adjust?
Basically, there are 3 area types to find bass:
How do you adjust? First thing, slow down! Then use your electronics and start hunting for schools or balls of shad. From the area you discover the turnover, starting working out of the creek toward the main lake. Concentrate on visible structure and only work areas that have shad. It is important to find the largest concentration of shad because that is where most of the bass will be.
Once again, Pro Staff at bigbassbaits.net recommend the following:
When turnover is complete, all the warm water is now on the bottom and the coldest water is on the top. Once everything stabilizes, you can go back to Trick #1(Shallow Bass Tactics), up until winter when all the shad have returned to their winter homes in deep water, and then we will go to game plan 3 & 4.
Until next year,
We at bigbassbaits.net want to wish you the happiest holiday possible.
